Registering Jaffna residents 'illegal'

A Tamil political party in Sri Lanka has submitted a petition to the Supreme Court against forcibly registering Tamil residents in Jaffna allegedly by the security forces.

Tamil National Alliance (TNA) parliamentarian MA Sumandiran told BBC Sandeshaya that the measure is a violation of a previous Supreme Court order.

“This is completely illegal. You cannot selectively register a community,” he said.

The MP who is a prominent human rights lawyer further said that it is an illegal act under international law.
